Using pads of sticky notes, scrapbook paper and a few other supplies, I made one of these books for each of Rebecca's classmates to celebrate the last day of Kindergarten.
Here is my first step-by-step tutorial... and I made it an easy one. I made these blocks for my mom and mother-in-law for Christmas and they loved them, so I thought I'd share. They are easy, although time consuming. And if you think they are just too much work... I would love to make them for you .

Japanese Kusudama , this tutorial is featured on Craftuts Anyone can do that, I assure you. The proof: I can, just take a quick look at my result below.

My friends, if there ever was a bandwagon, this carefree DIYer is jumping right on it. For months, I’ve seen fabulous versions of the sunburst mirror pop up all over the blogosphere. And for weeks now, with every stop in the paint department, I couldn’t help but notice how those paint stir sticks might just make a very cool version of this decorative favorite.
Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning.

This set of 20 sea creature felt-covered magnets makes a great gift for a child or an adult who loves the ocean. The tiny magnet inside each creature is super powerful which makes this a really useful present, a whimsical take on a bulletin board.
My local library recently advertised a class for making paperclip chandeliers. Sadly it was for 6th graders, but it piqued my interest.
I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons.
i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach... as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen.
